PRINCESS MARGARET

REPORTED INVITATION TO VISIT CANADA DURING COMING YEAR


On the orders of the day:


PC

Gordon Graydon

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Gordon Graydon (Peel):

I should like to direct an inquiry to the Prime Minister, notice of which I have sent to him, following a suggestion I made during the debate on external affairs. I refer to a press report that an invitation has been extended by the Canadian government to Princess Margaret to visit Canada during the coming year. Has an invitation been extended, and, if so, has it been accepted? If no invitation has been extended, will the government consider extending such an invitation? According to press reports, Buckingham palace says it is interested in the suggestion.

Louis Stephen St-Laurent (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council)

Liberal

Right Hon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime Minister):

I should be surprised if the report in the press were exact. There is no foundation for the rumours which have been circulating as to a visit to Canada and the United States in the near future by Her Royal Highness Princess Margaret. On November 14 we were informed that this rumour was causing some embarrassment in London, and that it would be appreciated if steps were taken here in Ottawa to deny it. No invitation has been extended to Their Majesties or to any of the members of the royal family at this time.

HOUSING

INCREASED RENTALS


On the orders of the day:


CCF

Stanley Howard Knowles (Whip of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation)

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

I wish to direct a question to the Minister of Finance, but in his absence perhaps one of his assistants may be able to answer it or, if not, an answer could be given later. Are tenants who have had their rents increased by maximum rental decisions made since the minister made his announcement on November 3 liable to further increases on or after December 15?
